Dear A Momma’s View

I thought long and hard how to best approach this. I could have simply written a post about our 4 years together, explain what creating you and connecting with you and all the wonderful blogs out there means to me. Instead I decided on writing a little letter to you.

First of all: Happy 4th anniversary! I can’t believe we celebrate 4 years together already. Time has flown by. So much has happened and I admit, I haven’t paid you the attention I would like to recently. I’m sorry I neglected you over the last couple of months and I truly hope I will be able to spend more time with you again.

Let me tell you how much you mean to me. You might think you are “just” a blog. The same way I sometimes think I’m “just” a mom. But we are so much more. You are so much more! Over all this time you have given me so much. You were an outlet for my thoughts, my frustrations, my worries, my fear and my joy. You were the connecting link to so many people out there, also writing their hearts out, sharing their thoughts, frustrations, worries, fears, joys with the world. You have opened the door to so many virtual friendships but you have also given me confidence.

Confidence that I can express myself. Confidence that I’m much more than I often think. Confidence that my thoughts can be shared and that they might not be as out of wack as I might think they are. You are also a way to relive my memories. Because I share them thanks to you.

We’ve seen some crazy stats together. So often I was wowed about the attention we got. Yes, it’s a bit more quiet at the moment but this is because I couldn’t really be there with you. It’s not you, don’t worry. And I know if we really want it, we will see the crazy stats again. But let’s take it easy and just enjoy. Enjoy what we have. The community.

Dear A Momma’s View, I simply would like to say thank you. For all you’ve done for me. For all the connections I made thanks to you. For all I’ve learned thanks to you. I’d like to say thank you for always being there for me, just a click away. For being patient with me, for making me laugh and cry. It’s been a blast and I’m looking forward to many more years together and connecting with other blog(ger)s out there, sharing what we all want to share but most of all our passion for blogging.

Happy 4th Anniversary

Blast From The Past – People We Are Meant To Meet

Some might say that there is no coincidence in life. Things happen for a reason. I do believe that too. Just like things happen for a reason, we also meet people for a specific reason. We might not know why at the beginning and see it as one of the connections we just simply make. But in the long shot it will all fall in place. Everyone teaches you some sort of a lesson. It’s another piece for you to add to your puzzle of life.

I’m currently dealing with someone I have met by coincidence. While for many years I never realized why this person would have entered my life it all makes sense today. Without this person some things would simply not be that easy to handle right now. It made me think of other connections I made over the years and this post here, that I like to share as a Blast From The Past came to mind. For now I just want to say one thing: The people that play some kind of a role in your life are there for a reason. They teach you something. You just have to see it. Eventually it will all make sense.

Black Cat Blue Sea


Oh the people you meet when blogging! It’s truly amazing. I could list so many bloggers here I met over the two years I’m blogging, some of them I started following in the very beginning, some I only found later.

Like Cyranny. I’ve only connected with this crazy, fun blogger recently and I’m sure glad I did! Not only is her blog heaps of fun but her ideas are great too, like her picture battle… Just hop over and see for yourself!

And not only has she challenged me to a picture battle but she has also nominated me for another Black Cat Blue Sea Award. And you know what she said??? She actually said that “Momma is always a good read”… Yep, she said that! How nice of her!!!

So thank you, my friend! I really appreciate it!

Susie Lindau's Wild Ride

The Ultimate Link Up Party! Drop and Hop on the Wild Ride!It’s time for another drop and hop, link up party here at the Wild Ride! My parties always turn into ragers and last the whole weekend. The bar is open, the barista is making cappuccinos and the buffet has every delectable treat you can imagine. Really! DJ KSmash is already spinning.

So leave a link to your blog in the comments and party down with my friends. Mingle with other wild riders and click to their blogs. Tell them, “Susie sent me,” and they might click to yours.

But what’s the best way to entice others to check out your blog? Good question.

Leave a short hook to tell us what your blog is about. You’re a space cowboy? Then how about this:
